"Some copies left from our tour of Mexico.
100 white tapes with blue insert.
3 songs from the upcoming LP 'DARK THOUGHTS AT WORK,'"
Philly Punks DARK THOUGHTS wrote on their Bandcamp page this past week. Fittingly-named DARK THOUGHTS WINTER TAPE is their latest quick-strike release and quasi-follow-up to October 2017's festively-appropriate DARK THOUGHTS HALLOWEEN TAPE. Not entirely unlike similarly-named DARK THOUGHTS HALLOWEEN TAPE, DARK THOUGHTS WINTER TAPE features three select songs from DARK THOUGHTS' upcoming sophomore album, DARK THOUGHTS AT WORK: "PSYCHO WARD," "NO GOOD," and "DON'T WANNA." "NO GOOD" and "DON'T WANNA" were previously featured on DARK THOUGHTS HALLOWEEN TAPE—along with "HATE THIS SONG" and "LITTLE THING"—in rough demo form; although, I'm assuming, much won't change from "rough demo" tape form to the finalized cuts to be featured on DARK THOUGHTS AT WORK.

It's since, seemingly disappeared from The Internet, but DARK THOUGHTS HALLOWEEN TAPE featured four tracks, as well as festive sound effects and "spooky noises," which is why DARK THOUGHTS WINTER TAPE appears to be so much shorter at a total of 4:01-minutes in length. Having already heard five tracks, as well as a couple rough demos, from DARK THOUGHTS' 2016 self-titled debut follow-up, it appears as though DARK THOUGHTS AT WORK is soon impending. DARK THOUGHTS currently have a string of gigs lined up for the next few months, including 3/23 W/ BUGG [& CLASP] @ EVERYBODY HITS and 4/5 W/ SWEARIN', BIG EYES & WEEDHOUNDS @ MARKET HOTEL (NYC) and new dates are regularly added to the sidebar of DARK THOUGHTS' Bandcamp. WINTER TAPE will be currently available at DARK THOUGHTS' upcoming East Coast dates and cassettes are also, available to purchase directly from DARKTHOUGHTS.BIGCARTEL.COM, if you aren't able to make it out to a show this Winter. ❄️
